Kent BOF spending plan

KENT — The Kent Board of Finance unanimously approved a total town budget for 2020-21 of $13,535,103 at a special meeting Tuesday, May 19. 

The total includes town government, Kent Center School and the town’s share of the Region One budget. 

The mill rate remains unchanged at 18.61. 

Many hiking trails to visit

KENT — One of the most popular outdoor recreation destinations in Kent opened again to the public on Sunday, May 17, at 9 a.m. 

Town officials hope you won’t go there. First Selectman Jean Speck sent out an email to town residents announcing the opening of the area around Bull’s Bridge.

Works from the “Art on Paper 2020” New York fair from early March 2020, are on exhibit currently at Eckert Fine Art at 12 Old Barn Road in Kent. The show features work by artists Robert Rauschenberg, Chizuru Morii Kaplan, Julian Schnabel and others. Owner Jane Eckert said, like many local venues during the COVID-19 situation, the gallery is open by appointment only. They also sell on Artsy, a vetted online art selling service. Photo submitted

For art galleries, the internet continues to be a good venue

KENT — Ever since the state of Connecticut required workers for all “non-essential” jobs to stay home, life has been lived online or at more-than-an-arm’s-length.

In response, Kent’s art venues are getting creative about how they can sell art.
